How dental implants from your dentist in Springfield, Illinois can complete your smiledental implants

Are you hiding your smile because of missing teeth? Are you embarrassed by the gaps in your smile? If your self-esteem and self-confidence are suffering because you’ve lost a few teeth, it’s time to close the gaps and get your smile back with dental implants! Dr. John Luker at Luker Dental Care in Springfield, Illinois wants to share how dental implants can help you and your smile.

Dental implants are the high-tech solution to achieving a beautiful, complete smile. They can replace a single or multiple missing teeth, filling in the gaps from lost teeth. If you’ve worn dentures for a long time, you’ve probably experienced a loose denture, a few reline procedures, and discomfort. The good news is you can replace a worn out denture with implant supported dentures.

People love dental implants because they are:

  • Stable because they are firmly surrounded by bone and won’t move around the way dental appliances sometimes can
  • Beautifully natural-looking because the dental implant crown is made of high-tech ceramic that reflects light, just like your natural teeth
  • Convenient because you brush and floss the implants just like natural teeth

Dental implants are the most successful surgical implant, with success rates over 95% according to the American Academy of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons. Another great benefit of dental implants is they help to conserve jawbone strength.

Dental implants are made of titanium, a unique, biocompatible material that fuses with bone. The dental implant is inserted during a simple in-office procedure. Over a healing period, bone fills in and locks the implant in place permanently. After the implant area has healed, your implant is capped with a beautiful implant crown.

You deserve a complete smile, a smile without embarrassing gaps between your teeth. Now, you can restore your smile beautifully with dental implants.
